    I feel like it would work... if you spent the time training the frogs to go to that spot like in a flea circus.

    Would a FrogLog work for birds too? Apparently, that's my uninvited party guest...

    That's kinda what I thought, though they seem to have absolutely NO trouble congregating in the skimmer....

    Someone posted in a "tips post". That the frog log does really work. Or frogs end up in the skimmer too, but then so do mice, spiders, and bunnies

    Yes, my froglogs worked great until the dog ate em! It was a guest dog, need to get some more. My two dogs didn't even look twice at them.

    ewwwwwwwwww LOL

    I think they would work because the frogs do tend to swim around the edge looking for a way out so.........

    A guest dog from France? Like the Coneheads?

    In my case those were squirrels. I saved one whom I saw, but 4 over the years died. Though after that it stopped. Maybe those were suicidal squirrels, and the rest are the happy ones.



    uhm.....while I was writing that mybwife told me there was a small frog in the pool. Yes, it was. Small, green an dead. My pool has stepsfrom the shallow part out, frogs are good swimmers, why not use steps? RIP.
